A Full Saturday!

Today, Taylor and I drove down to Tacoma to see Gary and Shasta--good friends from GU who are engaged (congrats guys!). We hope to be able to make their wedding "sometime next summer"  :) We had a fabulous lunch with them at Duke's on the water. I'm almost afraid to say it (living in New England) but I think that Duke's was the best New England Clam Chowder I ever had! :-o We also got to see Gary's new condo, where he and Shaz (he calls her "the boss) :) will live once they get married. We're very excited for them--such a cute couple!
I think T is a handsome driver :) Granted, I'm rather biased, but he does make me swoon sometimes and I have to take pictures!  
We have no idea what this missile-car-thing is, or what it's supposed to mean. Just a little something we passed on our way to Gary's place!  Also, T wanted me to take a picture of the "misty-moisty mountains." There's just something about them that makes us feel good--that somehow we're in the right place if the mountains are misting this time of year (and that we can see them!). We can't wait to get back to the w(b)est coast ;)
We stopped by Mercer Island, before heading south, to see the Turkey Bowl--an annual flag football game (that usually turns into tackle football by the end of the day) with all the kids T grew up with. There is always a "big boys" game (and a "big girls" cheering/viewing group) and a "little boys" game (with a "sometimes" little-girl cheering section). 
T didn't play because he's running the Seattle Marathon tomorrow :) 
We also saw a bit of downtown Seattle--we had to pick up T's bib for the race and his timing anklet--before heading to West Seattle to see Mike and Kayleen again. It was a pretty afternoon, nice and overcast :) (just the way we like it!), with lots of lovely time spend with beautiful, fun people. 
And then we went to Divine Liturgy--but I need to write a separate post about that :)

  1. Funny, I like to take pictures of Mike when he's driving too. :) I don't know what it is, but I agree, there is something attractive about a man (most especially a husband) driving.

    I miss St. John's alot when we are away too. It is truly the most prayerful and fruitful time for me, attending the Byzantine rite liturgy.

    It was so good to see you guys! I'm glad you had an eventful visit, and we are looking forward to the next one!
